This was very well written and I think will provoke alot of discussion and ideas for many. You have done alot of research and it shows. Also, I like that you aren't suggesting, you are asking and searching with the reader, though you offer your views and thoughts along the way. I like that aspect within it alot, and wish you the best of luck with this book. Very well written.
As for the questions why are we here who are we.....the quest the search. I believe one can study every writer, every religion, every philosopher, read every play, explore paintings and music, every culture and sage, search through nature all the way to molecules and science all the way to the cosmos molecular structure, and it is good to search this way and learn as you go, you will always find a gem in each area, a sparkle shimmering, a piece to the puzzle. But after all that, after one has exhausted every path and hill and debated and discussed over mountains and bodies of water, it comes down to this the greatest treasure and gem of all, and that is love itself, and that is where you will find God and your peaceful blissful freedom. That's what I found on the quest. And that love is there in every cosmic molecule, every part of nature, every piece of art, music, play, and sculpture. It's there in kindness and laughter, and it's there in one another and right inside your heart, it's what our souls are made of and made for on this wild journey, this school of earth. If there is reincarnation, I think it is out of love for our soul's growth, to step up higher in our best qualities and feel that freedom of the soul that peace of mind and happiness that can only come from the source the flow of that ocean of love of God himself. Thanks for opening this kind of forum I hope there is a wikipub forum too would love to hear more about your plays and such. Keep writing you have talent! happiness to ya, Sunglow
